I have a UPS power supply but each time the power goes off it does not last long, it beeps then abruptly goes off without warning. Is there a ware i can know the actual battery level of the UPS? I have bought this battery recently so the battery cannot be flat.
How to know the UPS battery level for my computer
UPS is the short term used for Uninterruptible Power Supply. It is a device that lets your computer operate for a short amount of time when the main power source is gone or lost which normally happens when there is a power interruption. It is also similar to the usual AVR or automatic voltage regulator that protects the computer from power surges.
An uninterruptible power supply has a battery that kicks in or takes over automatically when the device detects that the main power source is gone. This way you have time to save your work and no data is lost. And especially, you have time to shut down your computer avoiding damage to your system caused by the power interruption.
When you connect your computer to a UPS, I don’t think you still need a program that will tell you the operating level or capacity of the device because Microsoft Windows is already equipped with it. You can check the battery or power level of your UPS by clicking Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, and then Power Options.
In Power Options Properties dialog box, select UPS tab. This tab shows the status of your uninterruptible power supply like the current power source, the estimated UPS runtime, the estimated UPS capacity, and the battery condition. The information displayed about the device depends on the model. See image.
